as a result. as of today, the hite house pushed back expectations, taping them down and jay carney said that we don't expect those numbers to be very high and we never did. henry is at the white house with our report. reporter: embarrassed over the rollout of president obama signatureomestic achievement that only six people signed up on day one and was criticized by congressman darrell issa. >> there are no doubt there from a contractor about figures. if the website wasn working on october 1, that is a dog bites man story i said demanded to know why a parade of tp officials including kathleen sebelius did not give the information. >> if you have internal numbers and you're not willing to hear extra numbers, you are doing the kind of propaganda that this administration has done since day one. reporter: they say it will take a couple of weeks to nail down the details. >> why don't you put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we have a reasonable and accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis, consistent with the data release that you see ot
: it's interesting. jay carney walked out and near the top of this daily briefing say all this has been fixed, verizon had it up and running by 7:00 a.m. this morning. but while the briefing was going on, i was checking social media, and various people were insisting that jay carney was wrong, that in fact they were trying to log on, to some of the exchanges and could not get on and were getting the error message you just showed, system not working. so i asked jay carney, what was true and what was not. take a listen. >> how can you say at 7:00 a.m. this morning it was back up and running? how can people be confident -- >> obviously i'm not online right now, ed, or people who are e-mailing you, but what verizon at the aremark announced they successfully resolved the issue with the network component overnight, and taz of 7:00 a.m., the data services hub was fully operational. i'm sure the people who are working -- well, i didn't say that. i said i'm sure the people who are working on the issue are addressing the kind of questions you just raised if that's the case. >> reporter: one of ma
to determine how to carry those out. white house spokesman jay carney warned that critics of nsa surveillance should be careful what they wish for. >> we're one attack away from assessments about what went wrong in our intelligence capabilities and collections. the work that's being done here saves lives. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies such as german chancellor merkel saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. though it confirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head-to-head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. the head of the delegation told me their discussion was frank. >> you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message when we came to congress today. this bill which has come through the allegations is something that's [ inaudible ]. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why our strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: today, they had more to talk about regarding spain, where the
. and the problem for the administration is, they can spin it and jay carney can refuse to give out the enrollment numbers and they can play games with the timing, but it doesn't matter. ultimately, the numbers are what they are. people are getting these notices. one of the other arguments that defenders of the law have been making lately, that if you get your insurance through your employer, you're really not affected by any of this. that's total and utter nonsense, as we just heard from her. but you hear this from everybody. we got a letter at the weekly standard telling us our premiums would be increasing. you talk to people across the country and they tell you their premiums will be increasing. this affects everybody. >> and it affected the politics here. listen to max baucus, democrat, talking about this rollout. >> i think it makes better sense. let's just see how much of this can be put together, how much humpty dumpty can be fixed in the next month. if it looks like humpty dumpty is not being put back better, maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties. it's not right to pe
and we're on the hook. jay carney took the podium. he also said the reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees, is solely because of the website. here's carney. >> let me just tell you now, november 1st. we don't expect those numbers to be very high. we never did. they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we had with the website. >> that's interesting. then he says they never did know that because earlier in the week, the answer was the president had no idea that the website was not going to work. so they constantly try to have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised the experts seemed so surprised about consumer behavior. if you can't get on to the website you're not going to be able to shop around. that's not working. plus, when you go on, if you decide, juan, if you choose to lo look at the subsidies, you could get a generous subsidy, however, consumer behavior is one of, i don't want the hassle, i'm just going to sign up for medicaid. it might be a less generous subsidy, but that's what people do. once you get on medicaid, which is substandard, it
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu
d.c. types going, we'll have jay carney on today. listen to how he answers the questions about this. this never happened. at least the person at the top and most of us, no, never. it is an answer you will never accept on anything in your own personal life. but it's very interesting for me to often hear how these guys and women answer questions that they're not really comfortable with. >> i will say this, does this matter? i think it matters, anything involving choosing a vice president inside politics, ittette goods how these candidates really think and make decisions which does matter for leadership and being in the white house. what is this about barack obama that he would never have replaced joe biden when he had these options. it may say loyalty. that's what it would have said about w. and george h.w. >> that's getting a little tired. i have to tell you. nobody cares more about this process than the man who's going to be on the ticket with whoever they choose. >> excellent point. excellent point. >> good conversation. >> i don't know if there's sand that deep to bury your head i
that a switch was discussed as were many options but he says it was never considered seriously. jay carney says the president dismissed the idea out of hand. i know for a fact that president obama never considered this, never thought about it, never entertained it. the vice president has been a partner of his from the 2008 campaign on, an excellent governing partner and excellent campaign partner. so again, campaigns test everything but as the book itself says this was never considered by the president. >> obama's former senior adviser, david plouffe, also denies any serious intent. plouffe tweeted "never any, any consideration of vice president of hillary rodham clinton switch." >>> congress is ramping up its investigation into the terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, as you'll recall, four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya tide in that ferocious attack. and republicans critical of the white house response on the night of september 11th have demanded access to witnesses. well now they'll get their chance in just a couple of weeks, cia operatives who were on t
increase to be able to do it. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carney, who is briefing now, says the affordable care act requirement that insurance plans cover things like maternity care and that they have no cap on lifetime expenses is what makes them more expensive. carney says many people will have better insurance or less cost and in some cases people whose cost goes up will receive government tax subsidies that actually reduce what they finally pay. gretchen? >> wendell, thanks so much for providing a lot of those answers for us. >>> speaking of the obama care website, now you see her, now you don't. the smiling young woman featured on obama care's website, guess what? she's gone now. scrubbed out in an apparent web do-over. in her place, the far less eye catching quartet of really brilliant icons. to sign up for obama care. the identity of the woman remains a big secret. hard to believe since most people in washington can never keep a secret. there's some speculation she was scrubbed from the site to keep her safe after she became the target of heated criticism of the
already had health insurance, you could keep your plan no matter what, spokesman jay carney acknowledged today that promise is not being kept. >> it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify. >> reporter: carney's admission came just hours after the president's long-time advisor david axelrod acknowledged on msnbc. >> the vast majority of people in this country are keeping their plans. >> reporter: which means others are not. even though the president said this when he was selling the law. >> if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. >> reporter: republican senator ron johnson is now pushing legislation to grandfather as many consumers as possible into their current plans after reports of hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellation notices. among the 14 million people who'd buy their own coverage because they do not have employer-based insurance. while those mass cancellations raise doubts
money, millions will be enrolling and we're on the hooke dana, jay carney also said the a reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees is solely because of the web site. here is carney. >> let me just tell you now, ont november 1, we don't expectmber those numbers to be very high'te and we never did.ry but they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we've had with the web site. >> that's interesting. he says they never did know thah becausee earlier in the week, te answer was that the president had no idea that the web site was not going to work. they constantly try have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised that the experts seemed so surprised about consumer behavior. if you can't get on to the web site, you're not going to be able to shop around. can as the president said, just shop around. that's not work. plus, when you go on,le if you decide, if you choose, juan, to look at the subsidies, you could get a more generous one throughy the obamacare exchanges. however, consumer behavior isnsm one of -- i don't want the hassle. i'm just going to sign for me
that jay carney said in response to this. >> the fact is we have been enormously cooperative and gone to extraordinary efforts to work with seven different, seven different congressional committees investigating what happened before, during, and after the benghazi attacks. including testimony of 13 different congressional hearings and participation in 40 staff briefings, and the provision of over 25,000 pages of documents. >> is the administration correct in what is -- >> candy? >> go ahead. >> i'll tell you right now. i mean, jay carney, well over a week, well after that had said this was not preplanned or premeditated, still blamed this on the video. so we still don't have answers why that information came out the way it did and the misrepresentations were made to the american people. but there's much information that hasn't come forward including why were security requests denied. provided access to these survivors. we've asked for months in trying to work cooperatively with the administration. what he said is not the case. it can't be that the executive branch hopes this goes away
house briefing to get under way. the press secretary jay carney likely to face more questions about obama care and the political tell-all book "double rap." >>> hello, i'm wolf blitzer reporting from washington. more on the investigation into the fatal shooting over at the los angeles international airport. 23-year-old paul ciancia. police say he's the shooter. he remains in critical condition today, unable to speak with investigators. but we are starting to learn more about ciancia. and possibly some of his motives. we're also learning more about what happened just before the shooting, from someone who knew ciancia and his roommates. >> he asked one of the roommates if he could have a ride to the airport. >> why did he need a ride? >> he said he was going back home, either that his dad was kind of sick and he had to deal with family issues. >> did anyone ever see a ticket? >> no. he also didn't mention what day he had to leave. that morning yes, he doesn't knock, just opens the door and says, i need to leave. can you take me now? >> did he ever express any hatred toward the governm
. over the past couple of days, some of the people involved david axelrod, jay carney suggested that was never a consideration. was this a big deal or not a big deal? >> a big deal in the following sense. have you a presidency at the low point, after the last round of budget negotiations in 2011. the president's poll numbers are down. he's seen as weak. bill dal y, white house chief of staff at the time, look, we have to consider, as he said the other day, we have to consider every option. one thing to look at, do the due diligence, lets test it, lets see how obama clinton does compared to obama/biden. now, when the results came back it showed it didn't help that much and didn't go forward. but it is sort of extraordinary. if you think about the white house chief of staff, the top advisers. it was a very small group that knew about this david plouffe, axelrod, the president's pollster. for that group of people to say, look, we need to take a look at this, even though they knew it was a long shot and there would be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administ

was one of about 30 officials before he spoke in the park. jay carney gave a somewhat tortured response to a simple question. does the president support barbara buono. >> i haven't done asked that question in a while. i will have to get back to you. i think he met with her in new jersey earlier this year. i don't have updates on that. he supports her, but i honestly -- sorry. >> the candidate for governor, rodney dangerfield. i'm sure you are saying this is frustrating. this is a governor running for higher office. he had ethical clouds surrounding him and it's something we need to discuss. there is no one more enamored with chris christie than himself. the fact is that there serious issues and if women knew and that's what we were trying to get through with that special election that this governor scheduled for u.s. senate and our election on the fifth, people are focusing on it. people say wait a minute, this guy is anti-choice, anti-marriage equality and anti-planned parenthood and anti-pay equity. he is aligned with the tea party with social values. >> it is hard for a large state l
gets back on track but told fox the rollout has obviously not been good. jay carney today would not really address why the white house ignored those warnings about how they needed to beef up the staff, have one person who is a point person. he wouldn't address why they wouldn't do all of that, but he said this -- >> well, i think there were senior people focused on passage of and implementation of the affordable care act. there's no question about that. if the question is, do we wish the website was wishing more effectively and thus that more had been done to make sure it would work effectively come october 1st, the answer is unquestionedably yes. >> they do have a point person in terms of fixing the design. but he's leaving at the end of the year from hhs to come over here to the white house for an economic post so they'll have to look for someone else if they need a point person and the question really from that memo is why didn't they have a point person long ago? >> ed henry, thank you very much. that's the very question that ken cuccinelli, the republican gubernatorial cand
